Divertente ed a tratti poetico diario di viaggio. La visita delle varie città chiamate Dublin che si trovano negli Usa diventa un pretesto per raccontare fatti e persone incontrati lungo il cammino, narrate con humour graffiante e intelligente. Inoltre, a fare da cornice , c'è la musica, grande passione dell'autore al quale dedica alcune delle pagine più belle del libro. ( )

I actually read this while I was on a road trip through the USA. Not to all the Dublins but still. I like his travel writing a lot more than Bryson's actually, but maybe that's because British humor is more to my liking than most American. Plus, I don't think Bryson is funny (even in an American sense) while O'Connor is. ( )

Started out funny, but wore thin near the end. I expected a funny take, like Bryson's stuff about England (or about the U.S., for that matter), but it just wasn't there. ( )
